New York, NY (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
Facility maintenance company, 1 Stop Maintenance, has been making industry leading strides seeking out the newest and best maintenance practices to benefit its customers, its team members and the environment. 1 Stop recently launched its Green Healthy High Performance Cleaning program and has implemented it at a large Midwest regional retailer.
Facility maintenance requires a tremendous amount of equipment, chemicals and supplies. 1 Stop Maintenance and its vendors have dedicated budgets and departments to green research and development in order to comply with green standards. The 1 Stop executive team has attended a variety of industry training programs and educational seminars in order to remain on the leading edge of green technology. To that end, 1 Stop is seeking various green certifications in 2013, including ISSA’s CIMS-GB with Honors Certification.
On average, Americans spend around 90% of their day indoors. EPA studies indicate that indoor air pollutants can be two to five times, and occasionally up to 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. Poor air quality indoors can have an unwanted health effect on employees ranging from headaches and dizziness to fatigue, reducing productivity and performance.
"Our clients are becoming more concerned with the health of their employees and customers," said Brett Finkelstein, Chief Executive Officer. "The products and practices used in the cleaning process can make a big impact towards protecting their health, so we are working hard to improve our green program at comparable pricing to non-green alternatives."
The Green Healthy High Performance Cleaning Program includes focus on selecting green certified equipment, supplies and chemicals as well as documented procedures to ensure consistency in the field. Though primarily implemented for indoor cleaning, the program extends to outdoor maintenance as well.
A client of 1 Stop notes, “Though budgets are tight, we realized that the investment in green practices are an investment in our employees, customers and guests. We don’t lose money and our employees and customers are more healthy and happy about our efforts to be green.”
